.395 Pumpkin Ball Round from 25 yards. Both balls passed through the tailgate after entering 1.5″ apart
The 410 gauge light game slug is a highly accurate short to medium range slug for use in smooth bored barrels.
This round ball light game slug is designed to fit into standard 3″ (75 mm) shotgun shells and should be finished with a roll crimp closure. This is an extremely versatile round ball slug which fits equally well into 2 1/2″ shells, and with care it is possible to make up multi-ball loads using standard weight for weight shot data (experienced loaders only) It is not necessary or indeed recommended to use a overshot card on top of this load.
